the last century. >> someone you deeply loved and admired. what a privilege to have known him a little bit. >> as we've been mourning the loss of ali over the weekend, it's been gratifying to hear the wonderful things that people are saying about him. not just talking about their love for him but recognizing the controversial side of muhammad ali, as well. that's our top story this morning. muhammad ali has returned home. the body of the boxing legend is back home in louisville, kentucky, where a public memorial will take place a little later this week. national correspondent, craig melvin, in lieu i have. the city and the world celebrating the life of its native son. craig, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. i've had a chance to talk to some of the thousands who stopped by this makeshift memorial over the days, dropping off cards,

7:04 am
buzz aldrin, expressed their condolen condolences. and this picture of a defiant ali over sonny liston. saying, quote, he shook up the world and the world is better for it. rest in peace, champ. late sunday, a memorial service at the louisville islamic center paid tribute to ali as a man of faith. before he was the world's greatest, he was a son of louisvil louisville. ali learned how to box just blocks from this boxing gym. >> everyone you think kentucky, you think muhammad ali. >> reporter: his life outside the ring influenced roger purdy, who plans to become a doctor. >> you can do great things and you can change the world. and he did. >> reporter: at the muhammad ali center, a museum and cultural
7:05 am
thousands have made their own memorial. he became exponentially bigger than boxing. whose good spirit inspired millions, fought to the very end. his daughter, hana, sharing an emotional post on instagram saying, all of his organs failed. but his heart wouldn't stop beating for 30 minutes. his heart just kept beating. before that fight with george foreman in '74, a fight no one thought he was going to win, he gave one of his famous one-liners, promising to float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. another tribute, albeit an odd one popped up here hours after word of his death spread. a swarm of bees took root in
7:06 am
the ali center. a beekeeper telling me, that has never, ever happened. >> that's fitting, craig melvin. thank you very much. muhammad ali's daughter, laila joins us now. laila, good morning. our condolences. >> good morning. thank you. >> how are you doing? how is the family doing? >> we're sad. i personally have been sad for a long time. my father has been struggling for parkinson's disease many year. and it's not easy, wasn't easy, to watch him suffer. knowing that he's not suffering anymore gives me comfort. i had prepared mentally for many years, one day i was going to lose my father. and the time has come. and i think the whole world is sad. anybody who loved him, and so many do. i don't feel alone. it's not just our family. it's the whole world. >> it's going to take so many people of the world, not just americans, love him and revere
7:07 am
and feel like they know him. and yet, you know him from a vantage point so few do, as your father. tell us about that side of him. >> well, my father -- there isn't much that people don't know about my dad. he's pretty much an open book. he treated kids he didn't know the same as he treated us, with how much love he showed. you see him picking up kids and kissing babies. he always puts children first. and a lot of the work he's done is humanitarian work is about making sure that kids have a brighter future. so, he was a loving father. he gave us anything we wanted, now that i'm a parent, that isn't always good. he was a spoiler. but you know, that's what i remember. just being kissed and hugged and him being that person. give you anything you want. >> there was a kid that wa
7:08 am
piece living in louisville. he said, what i learned is you can do great things and change the world. the constant throughout his entire life was the unwavering belief in himself. where do you think he got that? >> i don't know. i have that same belief. and i feel like it was passed down to me. where he got it, i don't know. it was a pass down to him from somewhere. i think a lot of it comes from just having someone in your life that kind of puts that idea in your head that you can do whatever it is you want to do. my parents did it for me. my mom did. there's parents that tell their kids they can't do something. and they put that fear in their head. when you go out and you're willing to work hard, and you put in the work, you do what you thought you could o, it gives you confidence to keep going. that holds people back in life. i'm glad that child, among others, were inspired by
7:09 am
father. that's what they need, inspiration from others, to make you strong where they're not naturally strong. >> you talked about the suffering, laila. you said it was tough to watch. do you think your dad had grown weary of this fight? he was such a fighter. had he grown weary of this fight with parkinson's? >> that would be hard to answer that question. never to the point he wanted to move on. i know my father, one of the things he was afraid of was death. he wouldn't want to just move on. we're not in control. god is in control. and everything is written. and it was time for him to go. and i know he's in a better place now. and he's taking again and moving again and doing all of the things he couldn't do in his body. i'm happy for that. even though i will miss him deeply. >> i want to close by asking about your
7:10 am
conway jr. we should put up a picture of him. it's striking how much he bares a resemblance to his grandfather. i wonder if that's a comfort to you and what you plan to tell him about his grandfather? >> my son is a spitting image of my father when he was young. he has so many of the same characteristics and qualities. he's going to live on through him. he is learning more and more how special papa was. it's hard for me to break the news to them. i told them this morning that he went on to heaven. and it's hard to explain to a 5-year-old and 7-year-old about that. so, that was a challenge for me the first time i ever had to do it. but they're doing well. and i'm going to be here to support them and stay strong for them. >> laila, i know how proud your dad was of you. and our condolences. we mourn with you and your family. thank you very much. >> thanks for all of the love. i

bob costas will join us for more on the legacy of muhammad ali. donald trump under fire for comments about the federal judge on the trump university lawsuit. this as hillary clinton and bernie sanders get ready to battle it out in california. peter joins us this morning. >> with a win this weekend, hillary clinton in puerto rico, all but assured she will wrap up the democratic nomination tomorrow night, setting up for a tight with donald trump that's already under way. trump, in the face of blistering criticism, a lot from republicans, over attacks of the mexican-american judge. not softening his stance but intensifying it. hillary clinton looking past bernie sanders in california, hammering away at her rli
7:12 am
rival. >> donald trump is not qualified or temperamentally fit to be commander in chief. >> reporter: clinton, not mincing words. >> we're trying to elect a president, not a dictator. >> reporter: donald trump, stirring new outrage, arguing his ethnically-based criticism of the mexican-american judge overseeing his case, would apply to religion. saying that muslim judge would treat him up fairly -- >> that is possible, yes. >> reporter: as for judge gonzalo curiel, born in indiana, he is refusing to step back from his attacks. >> he's society of mexican. i want to build a wall. i'm doing well with the latinos, with the hispanics. i'm doing well with them, in my opinion. >> reporter: trump's comments, widely viewed as
7:13 am
prompting republicans to reject his words while supporting his campaign. >> all of us came from somewhere else. >> reporter: an from two men that have been floated as possible v.p. picks. senator bob corker on trump's behavior. >> i think he has to change. >> reporter: and newt gingrich. >> this is one of the worst mistakes that trump has made. >> reporter: at the start of the holy month of ramadan, president obama is extending his best wishes to muslims in the u.s. and around the world, adding this pointed contrast to trump. i stand firmly with muslim-american communities and rejection of the voices that would seek to divide us or limit our religious freedoms or civil rights. meanwhile, trump is reversing his stance on u.s. military intervention in libya, saying he would have authorized strikes to take out moammar qadd
7:14 am
take him out. >> reporter: a shift from the primary. >> we would be better off if gadhafi were in charge right now. >> reporter: it's increasingly likely that neither donald trump or hillary clinton will face an independent party challenger coming up this fall. but writer david french, whose name was recently floated as a possible third party pick, has decided not to make a bid. writing in an op-ed, i'm not the right person to challenge trump and hillary. but the path remains open for others. matt and savannah? >> peter alexander on politics. let's look to tropical storm colin, along the east coast. millions will start to feel the effects this morning. kerry sanders in clearwater beach. good morning to you. >> the lines have been coming through squall lines. and some cases, the winds are up to 50 miles per
7:15 am
that's knocked out power to 5,200 people in the tampa bay region. we look to the north and you see the strong rains and the wind. there can be up to eight inches of rain. the n.o.a.a. service, hurricane hunter, in the gulf of mexico, snapped an amazing photograph. you can see the waterspout off of the right wing. that suggests that there could be more tornadoes associated with tropical storm colin here. most schools are open. they expect that business will continue. a lot of sandbagging and concern over the next two or three days of possible flooding. >> kerry sanders. thanks very much. >> that's the calm before the storm. >> this is a lopsided storm. the heaviest amount of rain is on the
7:16 am
it's making its way into florida. 50-mile-per-hour winds, moving north-northeast, at 14 miles per hour. right now, we have tropical storm warnings along the gulf. inland, we have flash flood watches through monday, maybe even extended on into tomorrow. here's what we got today. look at this system. by 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, 50-mile-per-hour winds, just off the florida coast. make landfall some time late tonight. by 2:00 a.m., it's along the eastern georgia coast. and gets pushed out with winds of about 60 miles per hour. as kerry mentioned, we cannot rule out tornadoes because there's a lot of instability and a lot of warm, moist air. that's what's going on around the country. going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds.
7:17 am
good morning. i'm storm team 4 chuck bell. we're off to a bright and sunny start in washington. mid-60s. and 70 in college park. 71 downtown. your forecast for today, it will be a beautiful day to be outside. it will be toasty-warm. afternoon highs, mid to upper 80s. sunshine coming our way. rain showers coming up tomorrow. but tomorrow's rain chance stands at 30%. after that, we turn cooler and drier for the middle of the week. >> wednesday, up with eight inches of rain, all the way up to cape hatteras.
7:18 am
matt? savann savannah? we get ready to say good-bye to the greatest. we're joined by bryant gumbel and nbc's bob costas with their thoughts on the life and legacy of muhammad ali. i spent the weekend worrying about if the younger generation get it. he has been silent for three decades. >> bob was just sitting there, as we're watching melvin's piece. and i said, you realize that you're talking about the rumble in the jungle, somebody can be 45 years old and not have seen it. >> yeah. >> there really has been -- >> when he was cassius clay. and by the way, just as a side note, a lot of what ali said was profound. some of it was hyperbolic. when he said that cassius clay was a slave name, that was ironic because the oig
7:19 am
cassius clay was a white abolitionist, who was shot by a pro-slavery guy in the 1940s. that dun mean that ali didn't do what he did for good reasons. but cassius clay was an abolitionist. >> to go back to the point, now, everyone reveres him. now, everyone loves him and adores him and the temptation is to have this portrait. let's set it in its time. how radical. how controversial. and how expensive it was for him to do in the '60s, standing up to the war. >> it was not only expensive to him financially. and it was expensive to him in terms of his image. it's easy to say everybody embraced him and everybody loved him. but he did a variety of things that turned off a great portion of america. and i'm not just talking about dividing along racial lines. when he walked away from malcolm x. he turned his back on malcolm x. he lived to regret it and said later he wish he hadn't.
7:20 am
he vilified joe frazier in a way that today he would also be vilified. not always did he take a step that was applauded. often, quite contrary. >> wh you look at the sports of today and the sports figures and the money at stake, do you think we will see any athlete take the risk that we saw muhammad ali take? will we see an athlete activist like him again? >> doubtful. he was a remarkable individual. and it was a confluence of the individual and the times that produces. i don't know if you will get that combination of circumstances anymore. now, seems like everything is about branding. ali, mistakes and greatness taken together, he was authentic. >> i would argue, it would be tough to find somebody who approached his level of his platform. the height of his platform. his reach.
7:21 am
you can say lebron james, and his fame is considerable, but compared to muhammad ali, is almost nonexistent. >> when muhammad ali came on the scene in the '60s and '70s, boxing was mainstream. most americans haven't seen floyd mayweather fight. most americans can't tell you who the heavyweight champion of the world is. you would see the whole fight on nbc. some of the fights were on abc live. people saw this stuff. they knew who joe frazier was. >> you're going to speak at the memorial. what a great honor. >> it is a terrific honor. i would be lying if i told you it wasn't daunting. >> you will do well. bryant, bob. more to come on the life and death of muhammad ali, as we look at his impact outside of the ring. we're going to talk to football great, jim brown. first, this is "today" on nbc.

fairly because of his ban on muslim immigrants. in florida, praising for wind and rain as colin churns in the gulf. winds gusting over 30 miles per hour and rising tide was a sign that the storm is on its way. colin is the earliest third-named storm in the atlantic hurricane season. and overnight, thousands of fans flocked to a concert venue when kanye west announced a surprise concert. the crowd overwhelmed the venue, forcing the cancellation of the performance. west showed up, popping out of a sunroof of a car that was quickly surrounded by his fans. we begin on this hour focusing on the life of muhammad ali, the three-time heavyweight champ, who packed a punch outside of the ring with his words. influencing both politics and culture. the fight of the century. the rumble in the jungle. the thrilla in

7:34 am
like civil rights. >> everything in society was made white. we look at jesus, we see a white man with blonde hair and blue eyes. we look at the angels and see white with blonde hair and blue eyes. if the colored folks die and go to heaven, where are the colored angels? they must be in the kitchen, making milk and honey. >> reporter: on politics, ali was extraordinary. and his legacy, indelible. >> david remnick wrote a definitive book on ali. and jim brown of the cleveland browns, long-time friend of the champ. good to have you both with us. this is one of the moments where the words legend, icon, are thrown around. i love what you told our producer. in the case of muhammad ali, the legend is true. >> it's all true. all of the contradictions. at that time, very few people stood up for
7:35 am
jim brown is one of them. kareem abdul-jabbar was one of them. we think of him and quieted by parkinson's, this was an electrifying, radical, politically radical figure. it makes news when lebron james puts on a shirt to protest and legitimately to protest the killing of young black men in the street. he takes it off and he plays. muhammad ali lost three years-plus of his career, in an office we don't think about anymore, the heavyweight champion of the world. nobody knows who that is. >> jim, david sets me up perfectly. it's nice to see you. during that time and throughout much of his life, you were an unwavering friend of muhammad ali's. but when he said he wouldn't go to vietnam and wouldn't join the military, there were a lot of people in this country that thought he was using his religion as an excuse.
7:36 am
summit of people like bill russell and kareem abdul-jabbar. and you grilled ali. talk to me about it. >> well, i felt that he was a great friend and that his philosophy was right on. any american would want to enjoy freedom and justice. me and john wooten, a teammate on the cleveland browns, called together the black athletes of the country. i called them to cleveland to meet with him and see if he was sincere. if he was sincere, we would back him 100%. ali came in. came to the house the night before. we discussed it the next day. we had about a five-hour meeting. and he was asked every question you can ask a human being. and he cracked jokes and answered everything
7:37 am
genuinely. we came out of there as a unit, totally behind him and his actions. and later on, he won because i guess the supreme court reversed its decision. >> jim, over the years -- >> it was a great time. >> -- over the years, people have asked me a question, because they know how much i idolized him. they said, do you think that muhammad ali at that period of his life disliked white people? are you surprised by the question? and how would you answer it? >> absolutely not. he fought for human rights. and the great thing about him is he had a wonderful heart. but he hated discrimination. those of you who consider ourselves warriors, the number one thing that we had in this country was discrimination, racism. dehumanizing acts against a person because of the color of their skin. he hated
7:38 am
and i was in england with him once. we were at a party with some english young ladies. and he was having a wonderful time. and i said, ali, i thought you disliked white folks. kiddingly, saying that to him. he said no, just the americans. the english people are not really white. he comes up with these kind of things, to take the edge off of how he truly felt about racism. i hated racism. any black person in america had to look at racism as dehumanizing and something that we had to get rid of. >> and as i turn to you, david, let's not forget about the sports figure himself, the boxer. and yet, did he have misgivings about that sport. i noticed you wrote this weekend. ali was not blind to the brutalities of the game that has been
7:39 am
but race was often an ugly element of its history, david. >> it wasn't lost on him, david, that a lot of the post-war boxing and during the entire 20th century, was a white crowd watching two black men beat the hell out of each other, often senseless. look, he said things and behaved in ways that were contradictory. he was the champion of that sport and had doubts about it. in the nation of islam, they talked about separatism. and he had an integrated corner. his cornermen, some of them were white. he was an enormous urge toward pride, toward the pride of the black community. not the denigration of the white community. but in fact, it was the white community, the white power structures of the time, that he grew up in, in segregated louisville. and he rebelled against, quite logically, and he used the office of the heavyweight championship, which is nothing now, to be a symbol of strength
7:40 am
that's something that i don't think will ever be repeated. >> and boxing is how he said, that's how i was introduced to the world. >> that's how he advanced. >> david remnick. jim brown, perhaps we'll see you in louisville at the end of the week, i hope. >> thank you very much. >> thank you for your time, we appreciate it. david, thank you. we'll shift gears now. we have al at the weather wall with a check of the weather. >> thanks so much, savannah. we're talking heat out west. the wildfires right now, they're not going to get much relief in the humidity or temperatures. wednesday, up the 87 degrees. it will stay warm. temperatures 10 to 25 degrees above average. vegas by wednesday. 110. 109 in phoenix. phoenix, third day in a row they broke a record. the heat will start to shift east. but in the meantime later this week, finally starting to see a break. portland, by saturday. 68. 88 in sacramento.

it's 8:46. we know not to miss our breast exams. now, there's another reason to stay on top of it. mammograms can reveal the risk of the number one killer of women. next time you get a scan, you may be getting more than just a screening of breast cancer. breast cancer kills one in eight women. heart disease, one in every four. now, one test may spot early clues about both. a new study by researchers at mt. sinai hospital in new york, found in a a digital mammogram may determine heart disease. >> we can look at your mammogram and determine clues about the health of your heart. >> the year-long study followed 300 women, and 70% of those who had evidence of calcificati

8:48 am
looking at a breast exam, a mammogram, you can see calcification of the breast arteries? is that right? >> exactly. >> that's an indicator you might have heart disease. >> they found the number, 70%, the women who were found to have the calcification in the breast arteries, 70% had coronary artery calcification. and that's significant because coronary addressry calcification is one of the earliest signs of heart disease. >> can i ask them to look at this? is that anything any radiologist can see? >> it's easy to see with the naked eye. there's a correlation you can see there. there's a correlation between how much calcification is seen on the mammogram on those arteries and how much is on the c.a.t. scan, the image modality
8:49 am
calcification gets a score on the mammogram and gets a score on the c.a.t. scan of the heart. and someone could do a casual reading of it. once it becomes in the body of the report of the mammogram, there's certainly -- not a liability. but a responsibility to follow that up. and i think that's kind of the inherent message here. that we may be picking up heart disease in a-symptomatic women, that wouldn't be getting screened for cardiovascular disease with this test they're already getting done. that makes it appealing to health care providers and those of us who undergo the tests. >> it's like point of entry. if you see the calcification, that's step one. you should -- >> exactly. then, you follow-up with your primary care doctor. the risk factors

late friday night into saturday morning, you heard about it early. just to the sadness, the world has lost a legend. legend is a world that gets used a lot. as bryant gumbel said earlier, it's truly -- so many of us grow up not knowing his fights. when i was a young kid, i knew what his legend was. i didn't necessarily watch his fights. >> not old enough. i remember when he was cassius clay and remembered when he renounced that name and took muhammad ali. it was an electric time. and the idea that somebody he truly is a superstar. when the world heavyweight championship actually meant something, it was mainstream. >> it was. >> and for him to have that stripped for three years. and then, to come back again. >> right. >>
